Sample NIH R21

Several investigators graciously agreed to let NIAID post their applications online. I’m including some of the resources that NIAID has provided to the research community. They selected these applications as sound examples of good grantsmanship and highlighted each with annotations.cropped-cropped-toolkit-24157707-copy.jpg

NOTE: The text of these applications is copyrighted. Per the NIAID website, you may only use the text for nonprofit educational purposes provided the document remains unchanged and the PI, the grantee organization, and NIAID are credited.

R21 Sample Applications and Summary Statements
Per NIAID, “R21 funds novel scientific ideas, model systems, tools, agents, targets, and technologies that have the potential to substantially advance biomedical research. R21s are not intended for new investigators, and there is no evidence that they provide a path to an independent research career.”
